I was wondering today about, what if Six Flags lost the Warner Brothers license for their parks. Would it effect their overall business or improve it? From Warner's postion, I think that it would them to seperate from Six Flags as the brand and parks are loseing alot of value. Six Flags proably wouldn't hurt too much because people come for the coasters, not the characters and icons.
Personally next to Disney, Warner Brothers has one of the best library of entertainment programs and characters. If I were Warner, I would look into building a Disney-style park that is high on detail, theming, and story. Disney has Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and many other. Warner has Bugs Bunny, Yogi Bear, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Fred Flintstone, and Scooby Doo.
Next to Universal Studio parks, Disney don't really have a threat in the theme park industry in the United States. Paramount Parks don't count because there Amusement Parks more than full force theme parks. I think that if Warner opens a major park, they could give Disney a run for their money, which is a thing. This will drive Disney to build better rides and attractions for their parks.
I know that Islands of Adventure, I suppose do this but a lot of time has pass since then. Warner could learn from all of Islands mistakes.
What do you think?
